If you spent time wandering the neighborhood during the Bernal Heights Hillwide Garage Sale last Saturday, you probably loaded up on cast-off tchotchkes and supercheap housewares. But if you happened to walk by one very special garage, you would have had the opportunity to purchase some original artwork from Ada, an emerging artist at the peak of her creative power.
Reader Liz captured the scene:
For the Bernal Hill-wide garage sale, custom portraits by Ada. This guy requested a portrait of himself in a radioactive forest with a unicorn.
And the finished piece? Voila!!
If only Gertrude Stein could be in Bernalwood now…
